Taking my engagement photos this evening and these are the boots I've selected. I think they adequately represent the season, formality, and my personal style. I'm not the best shoe shiner...so if you guys can give me any pointers on how I can improve what I've spent hours working on, that constructive criticism is welcome. I have 4 hours to improve!
Shine looks good, enjoy yourself good sir and congrats!
What GG model is that by the way?
Thank you Justin! I gave it my all on the shine but it still pales in comparison to some of polishes ive been you post. I recall one such moment vividly as I reflexively slapped my monitor off of my deck in a moment of temporary frantic blindness. It was as if I had intently stared at the second coming of Christ himself from the center of our sun.
These are the Cotswold in brown patina. I think they're a relatively newer model but I could be wrong.
I think the shine looks great. Congrats. I know I don't comment much bc a lack of time but I sorta stay tuned with what's going on. When I shine I like to get a layer of neutral wax at the end to bring out the shine. But your shine looks great. https://youtu.be/WdHS-IgbHC0
The last step.
I usually suggest to remove anything ( like wax and shoe glazing ) at least twice a year. You clean the shoes with saphir soap and let them rejuvenate for 72H on the shoe trees without crean or anything. It really helps !!!
